Perth is one of the most beautiful and exciting places to visit. Both Australians and visitors from overseas can find something new and exciting to experience in Perth that they won’t find anywhere else.
Did you know, Perth has its own Kangaroo Island, more commonly known as Heirisson Island.
On Heirisson Island, you can visit the kangaroos that call the island home. The island is a great opportunity to experience Western Australia’s native flora and fauna—something you won’t find elsewhere in Australia and one of the best, unique things to do in Perth.
When you walk on top of Optus Stadium, you will be experiencing Perth as you have never experienced it before. In fact, it is unlikely that you have ever seen anything like this. The new tour offered at Optus Stadium allows you to walk up 78 steps all the way to the roof of Optus Stadium.
From there, you will be able to lean off the edge for a fun photo, or simply enjoy the stunning view. While you walk up, you will also be told about how the stadium was built, how it works, and what games are played here. If this sounds like fun to you, then you should definitely give this experience a chance.
Of course, for those who prefer to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground, there are still plenty of unique Perth experiences you can enjoy at Optus Stadium. Many Perth events visit the stadium, including international and national sporting spectacles, live music, and more!
The Blue Boat House or Crawley Edge Boatshed, is quite possibly the most photographed and Instagrammed place in Perth. While this might seem odd from the outset, it’s not hard to see why people love the boatshed as a backdrop once you see it in person. The blue building perfectly complements the river below and the sky above.
If you’re planning to snap a pic, you might want to get there as early as possible.
There is no denying that Perth is home to many cool bars. However, without a doubt, one of the coolest is The Flour Factory, also known as heaven for lovers of gin. This awesome bar has over 100 types of gin on offer.
If you’re keen to try a few, try out the Spin for Gin wheel! All you need to do is take a spin or two and see what you get!
Ask anyone, Fremantle Prison is one of the best places to visit in Perth. It’s full of history, features eye-catching architecture, and it’s completely spooky.
